Absolutely the best in harsh driving conditions; the 02 is tops for driving out on the beach with no bogging down or a hint like it's struggling. You would be surprised how much room you have for big bulky items in the back. My 02 came with regular passenger tires for a more comfortable ride to my dismay but they worked in the sand.
4wd on the fly and the T.O.D. Cargo space.
Gas mileage, fender paint or whatever it is that flakes, arm rests are cheesy.
